Memorial Day 2015

Having followed my Dad's 80th Medical Battalion/10th Armored Division during the past year, on this Memorial Day a special remembrance. The plaque at Arlington National Cemetery in honor of those who fought in the Battle of the Bulge.

Dedicated to the gallant and victorious men and women who participated in the Battle of the Bulge, World War II, 16 December 1944 through 25 January 1945 in Belgium and Luxembourg. The greatest battle ever fought by the United States Army. Presented by the veterans of the Battle of the Bulge on 16 December 1986.

[Sidenote: A number of posts on Facebook this year have noted that Memorial Day is not Veteran's Day- that Memorial Day is to remember those who died in (or as the result of) the wars. I appreciate that distinction.]
